Review: AVM FRITZ!Box WLAN 3270

AVM doesn't really do cheap, but the new FritzBox 3270 router is certainly not as expensive as its siblings. This single-radio, dual-band, 2x2 11n router is loosely based on the older 7270 model, and does away with all the analogue telephone connections and DECT base station. It still supports 10 SIP accounts, however, which can be used with the Fritz! Fon app for iOS and Android.

It's a bit of a mixed bag, and I reckon that for £99 it might be worth going for, but at £140 I think it's a little too pricey for its feature set. Performance is nothing special at close range, but it was quite impressive at 25m as you can see from the Performance Test results below. Read my full review over on Computeractive.
